I worked at Avery Dennison

Pros

Nice place to work. They know how to find great people because it's a revolving door. Great benefits and good work life balance

Cons

Will lay people off when ever something goes wrong with the bottom line. Upper management manages to the quarter and what the stock price is doing. They care more about stockholders than the employees and even more than their customers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Let someone else lead. Stop managing based on what wall street is saying and doing. Its time for a replacement of upper management. Find people that have been successful running a company and get rid of the yes people that run the company.

    I worked at Avery Dennison

    Pros

    Very flexible and understanding of personal emergencies.
    Above average benefits.
    When my positions was eliminated I was dealt with fairly and my severance was generous.
    Fellow employees are competent and good to work with.

    Cons

    They are reorganizing and generally contracting.
    IT staff is over-loaded and many people are working 60 hours / week for long periods.
    There is an increasing use of off-shore contractors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My immediate managers are doing a good job with what they are given, but upper management is not executing well.

    I have been working at Avery Dennison

    Pros

    Although there are many opportunities for advancement at Avery, the pay rate is not fair in many cases, especially in the GOLD Program.

    Cons

    Lots of relocation without being very flexible with employees wishes. Seems like very political within the corporate level also.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look out for your employees.
